This has to be one of the least politically correct issues being discussed, but I can't resist. Which is worse, being raped or being cuckolded? Robin Hanson first discussed this on his blog devoted to pursuing truth no matter what; Roissy picked it up on his blog devoted to uncovering the truth about men and women, from a distinctly male perspective.
I think most people's reaction would be that rape is worse. These two commentators don't have cuckoldry proper in mind, but rather cuckoldry that results in a child that the cuckold previously believed was his. Given that, they have some interesting things to say. In end, of course, it is best to avoid both rape and cuckoldry.
